Don't be fooled by Teva Mountain Games weather forecast
June 5, 2009 —
The Vail weather forecast for June 5-7, during this weekend’s Teva Mountain Games, is about as dismal as it could be - cloudy skies and 58 degrees according to weather underground.
But you can’t fit mountain weather into a little box, and you can’t sum up the temperature with two numbers.
The forecast isn’t wrong, but it’s certainly not accurate. Yes – we’ll have rain. But it will likely last for an hour or less, it will feel good for our Games’ overheated competitors, and by evening we’ll be grilling out and chilling out to all the music, events, and parties planned for the Games this weekend.
As evidence of what a "rainy" day is like in Vail, I'm sporting a brand-new sunburn, earned during a sun-drenched bike ride yesterday afternoon. And although it's a bit overcast as I write this (on the afternoon of June 5), this morning was clear and blue.
I’m sure we’ll have our normal afternoon showers, but the rest of the Games’ weather will be plenty warm – and I’m personally guaranteeing sunshine in the a.m., when many of the events take place.
OK, enough of me playing weatherman (isn’t that Reid’s job?) – I’m out the door and heading to the village to see what’s cooking at the Games’ today.
